Twitter Spotlight: Dave Stroup

Even though I left DC a few years ago, I love featuring Capital-area dwellers in the Twitter Spotlight. They’re smart and informed and passionate. Am I generalizing? Sure, a bit. But it’s my blog so I get to do that.

Today you’ll meet digital strategist, writer and photographer Dave Stroup. His web site bio calls out his experiences and accomplishments plus some good basic rules for living. When I read “when in doubt, Google it,” I wanted to send it to every intern in the world.

Here’s Dave.

If you don’t love dogs, you are the devil

I stepped out of the elevator and was immediately accosted by a lumbering black lab.

“Oh. I guess I’m here on Bring Your Dog to Work Day.” When I sat down to wait for my meeting to begin, the lab took the opportunity to push his snout up my skirt. Continue reading

‘Cause I’m a blonde

Yep, yet another post about my hair. I think about my hair a lot.

I went to my charming stylist Thomas’s apartment on the Lower East Side for highlights and a trim. He made my hair a little blonder than I expected, but I think I like it.

It looks much lighter in person, I think. And I’ll use undereye concealer in the future.

T and his boyfriend have the sweetest Schnauzer who answers to Yoko.

Happily, my allergies were kept at bay.

Have a great weekend, lovely friends.

Twitter Spotlight Jason McCool

I think you’ll have fun getting to know this DC-based musician, composer, actor, teacher and social media pro.

McCool. Yes, that is his real last name. It’s either a lot to live up to, or a great way to describe Jason. You be the judge.

Hey doggie

Bedford Street – Williamsburg, Brooklyn

“Can I take a picture of your dog?

“Sure.”

[Said dog, a French Mastiff, would only look at the camera when her owner moved his bagel directly in front of her. She has a thing for cream cheese, he said. I had no cream cheese.]

Twitter spotlight: Eliza Orlins

You know her from Survivor. I know her thanks to a fun gathering Ashley Spivey hosted to watch The Bachelor.

When I met her, I found Eliza completely intimidating and told her so. I’d be eaten alive on a show like Survivor and her real life job as an attorney is hard core too. She’s a badass (but also a sweetheart).

Without further ado, @eorlins is in the Twitter Spotlight.

Key learnings from Shiba Inu puppy cam

I’m assuming the world has tuned into Shiba Inu Puppy Cam at some point, but just in case you haven’t please click here N-O-W.

I have watched Puppy Cam far more than I should tell you, but at least I’m learning stuff.

First, puppies are often more entertaining than anything on TV, even when sleeping

Sorry, there’s puppy butt in ever screen shot I have taken

Also, I want a puppy  Continue reading

I love this face

Look at this face.

A friend from college days, is an angel for animals. People too; animals just tend to be extra lucky to meet Erin.

Erin found this dog, who she’s calling Tasha about a month ago, running around the Pigtown part of Baltimore. Tasha is back to good health and looking for a family to join. Erin already has two dogs that call her house home. Tasha needs her own place. If I were not allergic, I would be tempted.

More info:

Tasha is looking for a home! Found about a month ago as a stray in Pigtown (Baltimore, MD), was not claimed by anyone, so I’m trying to adopt her out. She is likely a German shepherd mix of some kind (I think there’s some yellow lab in there, maybe also corgi? Who knows!), about 2 years old, 50 or so lbs., spayed and UTD on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

She gets along OK with cats who will stand up to her (although needs to be introduced slowly), but seems picky about her canine friends, so probably should be an only dog (at least until someone has a chance to work with getting her better socialized to other dogs). She is VERY people friendly, loves to cuddle and give kisses, loves to ride in the car. Is generally pretty mellow in the house, not a super high-energy dog.

She is OK with being kept in a crate, although does whine for a few minutes when left alone, so would do well with a frozen Kong or some other kind of yummy treat to occupy her. Housebreaking is not 100% yet, but close, and the crate helps immensely with that. She walks nicely on a leash — will pull a bit, but does better with an anti-pull harness. If anyone is even interested in fostering her until she can find a permanent home, that would be a big help! If you’re interested, you can message me via Facebook or email at eharty@gmail.com.

Although a home in the Baltimore or Washington, DC area would be great, my friend has set up successful pet hand off relays before.

Will you help me spread the word?
